Camera keeps sayin card protected - Digital Cameras


Answers :

You didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so I'll assume it uses SD cards.\012\012\012

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.
